Requirements for the National Junior Honor Society

Students must be in their second semester of sixth through eighth grade for consideration. 

The five pillars of NJHS:

  • Scholarship
    Per national guidelines, at a minimum, students must have a cumulative GPA of 93, A scale, or equivalent standard of excellence.

  • Service
    This involves voluntary contributions made by a student to the school or community, done without compensation.

  • Leadership
    Student leaders are those who are resourceful, good problem solvers, and idea contributors. Leadership experiences can be drawn from school or community activities while working with or for others.

  • Character
    The student of good character is cooperative; demonstrates high standards of honesty and reliability; shows courtesy, concern, and respect for others; and generally maintains a clean disciplinary record.

  • Citizenship
    The student who demonstrates citizenship understands the importance of civic engagement; has a high regard for freedom and justice; respects democracy; respects the law for all citizens at the local, state, and federal levels; and demonstrates mature participation and responsibility in activities such as scouting, community organizations, or school clubs.

Students who meet the scholarship requirement will have an opportunity to complete a form detailing their accomplishments in and commitment to service, leadership, character, and citizenship.  Applications are sent home to eligible students after grades for the second quarter are finalized.
